Wise Children
5 jim
15th Feb 19: completely and utterley brilliant ...
Swan Lake
4 jim
11th Feb 19: Excellent company if slightly wheezy orchestra. Not sure about the end, I thought the lovers died together? Projection worked well, except for the swans which looked wierd. All in all a good night.
Chris Norman - Don't Knock The Rock Tour Live
5 Mary
5th Feb 19: Chris and the band are a fantastic team. You are so strong together. Who has seen you live, know what I mean. The music is full of emotions. You'd almost think he sings what he feels. I hope it will be a great tour in his homeland.
The Girl on the Train
5 Sally
3rd Feb 19: Excellent! Saw this at the Everyman in Cheltenham. A great production. Don't miss it!
La Fille mal gardee (The Wayward Daughter) (New Wimbledon Theatre, Outer London)
4 Tina
1st Feb 19: Dancing was superb,but very disappointed that they left out the traditional clog dance (or rather replaced it with a different clog dance to a different piece of music)Also no chicken dance.
The Knot (Tristan Bates Theatre (TBT), Inner London)
5 Jake Quinn
31st Jan 19: Fantastic, timely, poignant and funny gem!
Rosenbaum's Rescue (Park Theatre, Inner London)
4 jim
30th Jan 19: Really good play but David Bamber's inability to look any other actor in the eye drove me potty ... oh and did I spot Lars glancing at the photo of his son in the other room when Abraham told him he didn't resemble him ;-) ?
Adam Kay - This is Going to Hurt (Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor)
4 Margi
28th Jan 19: This was a fab show until the end. Whilst I appreciate that Adam was highlighting the plight and reality of the Juniour Doctor and the decisions that they make that can often have a poor outcome, I felt that after relating the story 300 times on stage that the emotional reaction was inappropriate. If indeed his emotional state was genuine, then this is not at all healthy or advised for his wellbeing
Jack and the Beanstalk (The Atkinson, Southport)
1 Jean
19th Jan 19: Poorest pantomime I've seen in a long time.if you like singing and dancing you'll enjoy
Motown's Greatest Hits - How Sweet it Is
2 Jane

Motown's Greatest Hits - How Sweet it Is
2 Disappointed
5th Jan 19: Nothing like videos and only 4 Guys not 5 Spoilt some good classic tunes as voices not great, Wouldn't recommend seeing them!!
Robin Hood (Regent Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent)
3 geoffo
4th Jan 19: poor script, looked a cheap production except for special effects. not the traditional style of panto, too many crude remarks for kids, time for a change.
Aladdin (Princess Pavilion, Falmouth)
5 Jasmine
16th Dec 18: Fantastic. Great show. We all laughed so much. They even did a birthday mention for my daughter with very short notice. She was so pleased. Well worth a watch. Already looking forward to next year's
The Nightingales
4 Kate
7th Dec 18: A very witty script brilliantly acted by all 6 of the cast
The Nightingales
1 Marcus
5th Dec 18: This play is dire. A clichéd plot and feeble writing. The comic moments are few and not very successful. Save your money and your time and keep away. I cannot give no stars so a reluctant one star is FAR too much.
Aladdin (King's Theatre, Glasgow)
5 Lesley
5th Dec 18: Fantastic night at the Kings... So funny, the cast work so hard. Brill ..
Peter Pan (Courtyard Theatre, Newtownabbey)
5 Susie
2nd Dec 18: Went with my daughter. It was so much fun. Wendy (Susi) was an absolute star on stage and so incredibly talented... what a singing voice too! Great job everyone.
The War of the Worlds
2nd Dec 18: The War of the Worlds, we walked out at half time and so did other folk loud music went on until half time. There was no way to follow the story line.
Rock of Ages (Sheffield Theatres, Sheffield)
5 Norbie
28th Nov 18: A loud , A loud and energetic rock musical I was expecting. And it delivered in spades. What I wasn’t expecting was a hilarious comedy as well. One of the funniest shows I’ve ever seen. Great performances, superb band and the audience loved it. Go see.
Charles Court Opera's 12th Boutique Panto (The King's Head Theatre, Inner London)
5 Cova
24th Nov 18: Soooo fun! Very talented cast that will mesmerize you for two hours and won't let you think of anything than Cinderella and Buttons' story. Don't miss it!!
